    My only experience per your query is with the Konus Pro Tactical M30 6.5 25 X 44, 30MM Mil-dot

    ... you might also consider ...

    Got a new konus m30 4.5-16x40


    Good luck!

    I have both a Nikon Monarch 3-12 X 42 and a new Clearidge Ultra XP5 4.5-22.5X50.
    Both are fine scopes but I reckon the Clearidge has more reliable and repeatable dial up adjustments.

    +1. I've got the BDC version, which is spaced 2 MOA a hash mark, and the 4-16x50. they also have a 4-16x44 in the HS. they also have a LR model which uses 1/2" adjustments to give you 72 MOA of internal adjustments. Shop around. tacticalstoredotcom had them for $449....but check for in stock availability. The optics are great and have a forever warranty. my $.02

    +2 even though it has the wide duplex for another $100 they'll make you a turret with your load data.... ALL for less then $400

    Sorry Nikon fans, the glass is good on Nikons but if you EVER have a problem, good luck getting it solved without a bunch of headaches. I've had to deal with Nikons CS and happy to say I won't ever have too again, PLUS to many floating around on the web as refurbished. IMHO
